Hello all,

I'm interested planning/organizing a small kinda of NGCC in Lisbon, Portugal in late May early
June. Just waiting for the venue to confirm possible dates.

Would be a 1day event kinda last year, is this something people would be interested? I can
push a google form for accessing the interest today.

Event planning is fun as long as you can pace it out properly.  Once you set a firm date for
an event the pressure on you to keep everything on track is nerve racking.  To do something
on the order of Cassandra Summit 2016, I think we are should plan for 2020.  It’s too late
for 2018 and even trying to meet the timeline for everything that would have to come together
makes 2019 too nerve racking a target date.  The steps should be:
                Form a planning committee
                Bring potential sponsors into the planning early
                Select an event planning vendor to guide us and to do the heavy lifting for

In the meantime, we could have a World-wide Distributed Asynchronous Cassandra Convention
which offers four benefits:
                It allows us to address the fact that we are a world-wide group that needs
a way to reach everyone in a way where no one is geographically disadvantaged
                No travel time, no travel expenses and no ticket fees makes it accessible
to a lot of people that otherwise would have to miss out
The lower production costs and simpler administrative workload allows us to reach implementation
                It’s cutting edge, world class innovation like Cassandra

Instaclustr sponsored the 2017 NGCC (Next Gen Cassandra Conference), which was developer/development
focused (vs user focused).

For 2018, we're looking at options for both a developer conference and a user conference.
There's a lot of logistics involved, and I think it's fairly obvious that most of the PMC
members aren't professional event planners, so it's possible that either/both conferences
may not happen, but we're doing our best to try to put something together.

I think some of the Instaclustr folks had done one last year which I really wanted to go to..
Distributed / Async both would be easier to get people to write papers, make slides, do youtube
videos with.. and then we could do a virtual web conf of the best submissions.

Is there any planning yet for a Cassandra Summit 2019 or Cassandra Summit 2018 (probably too

Is there a planning committee?

Who wants there to be a Cassandra Summit 2019 and who thinks there is a better way?

We could try a Cassandra Distributed Summit 2019 where we meet virtually and perhaps asynchronously,
but there would be a lot more energy and bonding if it’s not virtual.  I’m up for any
of these.
